I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths.

Sometimes life throws us challenges that are too overwhelming to handle alone. As a trauma informed and culturally sensitive therapist, I understand the importance of allowing space and time for healing in a non-judgmental space. As your therapist, my priority is that you feel comfortable as we work through these difficulties together. My approach is collaborative, as your voice is equally important. This is your lived experience, and my role is to help guide and gently empower you towards realizing a better version of yourself.

Glennon Doyle says it best: "I see your fear, and it's big. I also see your courage, and it's bigger. We can do hard things." Together we can build a safe and collaborative space that fosters growth. Life can be messy, even demanding; we will have hard days. And that’s okay. I approach therapy with patience, compassion, and humor. Tears and silence are so welcome here. My training is in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) through a trauma-informed lens. I fully believe that each individual requires a personalized therapeutic approach.

I provide individual long and short-term psychotherapy to adults, couple counseling, and supervision to licensed professionals. Therapy is a collaborative experience to overcome emotional obstacles that interfere with one's personal and career life. I appreciate the difficulties facing those struggling to find their "niche," be it career or otherwise as well as those who are single, living in a couple's world. Psychotherapy is about life and the problems one is facing rather than a diagnosis. My approach is tailored to meet each person's specific needs. I am told that my style is forthright, patient and authentic.

Therapy is a space for big feelings, hard conversations, and laughing at ourselves when we can. I like to form connections with folks that feel supportive, brave, and most of all, REAL. I know therapy is going well when I see folks begin to step out in new ways and take risks to develop deeper bonds. I find it fruitful to explore how past traumas show up in current relationships, and I’m active in session as part of my relational style. I also help folks befriend their bodies as an important resource. Learn more: https://www.bespokehealingchicago.com/

There are times when balance feels lost. Challenges come from many angles and catch us off guard, even when we are prepared. We adjust as best as we can but, change can be difficult, whether its small change or traumatic things that happen in our lives. I work with clients to adjust to even the most difficult changes in a collaborative approach. Starting therapy should not have the stigma of weakness.
